Suffolk Legislators Salute Marathoner

Suffolk County Legislator and Chairwoman of the Veterans Committee, Susan A.
Berland  welcomed Eva L. Casale, Team E.V.A (Every Veteran
Appreciated) and prime sponsor Ralph D. Spencer, Jr. from Suffolk Federal Credit Union to brief the committee on their Team E.V.A. event. Eva Casale ran seven marathons in seven days from April 21-April 27  to raise money in the memory of local service members lost in combat. The funds raised will be donated to the Hope For The Warriors foundation, which provides  support programs for current and former military and their families.

“The amount of dedication and effort it takes to run one marathon, let alone seven, is remarkable” Berland said.  “We are incredibly grateful that Eva and her team took on this challenge to help our veterans and their families.”

Casale launched her severn marathons last weekend in Huntington.
